Google sell 20k Nexus One handsets in first seven days?

Google's Nexus One has only been on sale for just over a week, and unsurprisingly the search giant aren't being especially forthcoming with sales figures quite yet.  That hasn't stopped mobile application analytics company Flurry from sticking their collective neck out and estimating around 20,00 of the Android 2.1 devices had been sold, and contrasting that with first-week Motorola DROID sales of 250,000 handsets and iPhone 3GS sales of 1.6m handsets.

Google support forums flooded by deluge of Nexus One customer complaints

Google support forums flooded by deluge of Nexus One customer complaints

The Google support forums are awash with customer complaints about the newly released Nexus One smartphone.  Consumers buying the device are finding that Google's level of customer support is limited to email, which is only answered in a day or two - there happens to be absolutely no direct phone support available at all.  The main complaint according to Engadget appears to be owners reporting that their device either never switches to 3G, or, it is constantly switching between 3G and EDGE (and 3G coverage debate).  It is reported that many of those having difficulties are so frustrated by Google’s lack of response and feedback that some are returning their phones to purchase competing models.

Unlocked AT&T Nexus One is Google’s secret second handset?

Unlocked AT&T Nexus One is Google’s secret second handset?

Since leaked specifications, FCC testing and hands-on evidence regarding the Google Nexus One seemingly confirmed that the Android 2.1 smartphone would only support 3G/UMTS on T-Mobile USA, those AT&T subscribers eyeing up the handset have been steadying themselves for a diet of EDGE-only data.  That diet may not be quite so concrete, however; a last-minute rumor has filtered through to BGR that Google will also be offering a second, unlocked Nexus One which would support AT&T 3G bands.

Will Google launch a Nexus One accessories program?

Will Google launch a Nexus One accessories program?

With the discovery of an official car kit in the works, we're wondering quite how strong a lead in Nexus One accessories Google plan to take. The undisputed trailblazer for courting third-party accessories is Apple, and they've created a huge ecosystem around the iPhone and the iPod; so far add-ons for Android devices have been pretty much left to the whims of their respective manufacturers, but Google's newly focussed involvement might change all that. Our prediction: some sort of "made for Nexus" tagline.

Right now, Android lacks a certification program - a "Made for Android" tag, as it were - in the same manner as Apple's, and aside from the openness of the platform itself the devices that have used it generally adopt standardized connectors and adapters. True, it took HTC a few iterations to get that down-pat, but going by the leaked roadmap we saw last week they've now got fully on board with things like microUSB. As Google climb aboard the device train, however, it might make sense for them to qualify what's like to become a rush of third-party Nexus One accessories with an official seal.
